pick up campaign contribution check. the judge had very strong words for john leopold. he said that it was an egregious failure on leopold's part and he should have known better. you can't take part in political activity during the working hours. it's clearly inappropriate and called it wrongful and illegal. the judge said that the command staff of the police department failed. there was a lot of testimony that everything he asked the detension detail to do went up the chief of command. that the chief of police knew about of course. the fact that they didn't step in and stop it was wrong and as for count three in this indictment, it was for misfees an in office and misconduct in office. the allegations included what you may have heard was that the
5:01 pm
executive protection detail was taking leopold to trysts with a county employee in the parking lot in the bowling alley in annapolis. the injuries that was not misconduct in office but what he found was egregious and misconduct in office was the fact that john leopold ordered and required his staff to empty -- empty his catheter bag after the back surgery, and the judge had strong words for him on that count. and called that behavior predatory and cruel and said it was abusive and outrageeous contract and john leopold had no license to misuse employee like that. count 5 was a not guilty indictment, and that had to do with misappropriating funding by a fidish area and because he was -- fiduciariy. that was the only one that carries a penalty up to five years in prison and the other
5:02 pm
two counts are, what is called common law crimes and so it's up to the judge to decide on the penalty in this case. just a few moments ago, the judge dismissed each side and said they would get together and we have been in touch with one member in anna, runel county and we were told that they would be putting out a statement and likely be asking for his removal from office. >> no date from sentenceing. any reaction from leopold or his attorney at this point? >> we're waiting for them to come up and we're going to see if we can catch the reaction, will. >> thank you for the update. shawn? >> and. in culpeper, virginia. a jury found a former police officer guilty of voluntary manslaughter for the shooting death of an unarmed woman. she was facing a murder charge. fox 5s john henrehan is leave outside of the courthouse now
5:03 pm
with the late-breaking details. john. >> reporter: this officer was facing more serious consequences and he was charged with first-degree murder or second-degree murder or voluntary manslaughter. the jury chose to come back with voluntary manslaughter. danielle harmon wright was a police officer here for five years. the jury found him guilty of unlawfully shooting into an occupied vehicle and into an occupied vehicle causing a death. they found him not guilty of a single firearms have launch and took place in the parking lot of a catholic school where a female motorist unarmed was essentially suspicious and shy pulled away. the officer fired a total of seven times. five bullets struck the 54-year- old patricia cook as she was pull away from the officer. the prosecutor told reporters it was an injustified shooting
5:04 pm
and thought so from the beginning. he was not disappointed with the voluntary manslaughter finding because he thought the self-defense verdict, he was concerned the jury might find it that way and they did not. he was happy to get a conviction on voluntary manslaughter and when you add all of the counts together, the former policeman is facing up to 25 years in prison and the same jury will begin the penalty phase of the trial tomorrow afternoon. the prosecutor told me he's probably not going to ask for a specific sentence, although he said he will urge the jury to level some kind of substantial penalty against the former policeman, who has been fired from the town of culpeper. again, the policeman daniel harmon wright, the former police officer, found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and other counts. he's facing up to 25 years in virginia prisons. the jury will set that sentence

5:06 pm
shadows of society for far too log. the president's plan would set up a way for illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship and also cracks down, he said, on businesses that hire illegals and tightens u.s. border security. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> reporter: the separate white house and senate proposals focus on roughly the same principles. they provide a way for the estimated 11 million people already in the country illegally to become citizens one day. centerren the border security and cracks down on the employers who hire illegal immigrants and streamlines the legal immigration system. of course, shawn, all of this
